Ep 13: Skyballs
Bristopia returns for another episode – broadcasting from 2017, your host Andy Price once more exams the state of the country from the UK's new capital city, Bristol. This is the first show post-Brexit – will its fallout in the future be tackled? Yes, and no. By which we mean a little bit. In today's episode, Andy gives you a rundown on what's been happening here in the future in the last few weeks and how it might affect YOU, before sitting down to chat with our in studio guest this episode, the returning Mrs Miggles. Despite trying to murder Andy to the tune of Britney Spears' Hit Me Baby One More Time, he's foolishly let her back into the studio to talk about the difficulties of going paperless when you don't know how to use the internet. And of course, American Intern Exchange Student, documentary-maker Justin Crockler is back with our main story. The UK's film industry has moved shop to Bristol and is attempting to reignite Britain's movie output with the next installment of the James Bond... Hosted on Acast.

Ep 11: Welcome to 2017 (Season 2)
Welcome back to season 2 of Bristopia! After a challenging live show closed our season 1 on an appalling note, your host Andy Price finally made it out the other side of his nervous breakdown to host the first episode of season 2. Welcome to 2017 you say? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? It means we're in the future, keep up. Seriously though, over the break Andy had a bunch of spare time and invented time travel, so season 2 of Bristopia takes place in the future: 2017. It's like the worst sci-fi ever. WE MEAN THE BEST. In today's episode Andy explains, concisely, all of the above. We discuss Bristol's new status as capital of England and meet our new prime minister Gavin Mcfabulous. Elsewhere we find out what office culture is like in the future before finally catching up with American Intern Exchange Student Justin Crockler who presents his latest documentary about how Bristol is now overrun with cat cafes to the extent that many establishments have now had to create elaborate ways to diversify.

Ep 5: Wherefore Art Thou, Justin Part 2: Welcome to Wahlburgers

Ep 1: T'oats 'Oatsome
In this first episode of Bristopia, we take a look at all things Bristol, UK. From cafe openings, to green capital bids, we'll deliver the news, not necessarily as it happens, but as you want it: with punchlines, and silliness. Who doesn't want to go to a cafe that only sells porridge, right? Well – you can hear all about this new restaurant in our short documentary, delivered by American intern exchange student, Justin Crockler. We think he may have listened to too much This American Life, but we kept quiet because he needs the credits. Elsewhere, we have a, slightly rude, interviewee in the studio – Polly Ashen, who talks about why her work on the Bristol Green Capital Bid is simply wonderful. We think she takes too much inspiration from Chris Martin. But for more on that, listen to the podcast.Follow us on Twitter! http://www.twitter.com/BristopiaPodLike us on Facebook! http://www.facebook.com/BristopiaShow notes! http://www.chaplinmoustachecomedy.co.uk/bristopia Hosted on Acast.
